Career Development Grants for Individuals and Groups
As of 31 March 2020
With immediate effect, the Australia Council for the Arts have suspended many of their investment programs currently or due to open. Suspending programs will allow Council to concentrate efforts on responding to the COVID-19 crisis situation faced by artists and arts organisations.
This program has been suspended.
If you are an individual artist, arts worker or group of artists, a Career Development Grant can provide support to further develop your skills or improve your capacity to build an enduring career in the arts. Career Development grants are available from $5,000 to $25,000. These grants can support a broad range of activities such as skills and professional development, mentorships, showcases, residencies and other projects directly related to your career development. Supported activities must last no longer than two years from the proposed start date.
The Australia Council offers three grant rounds each year for this category.
In 2020, the grant rounds will close on: Tuesday 4 February for projects starting after 1 May 2020 (11:59pm AEDT). Tuesday 2 June for projects starting after 1 September 2020 (11:59pm AEST). Tuesday 6 October for projects starting after 1 January 2021 (11.59pm AEDT).
